It's a very nice property in a convenient location, the unit is average in appearance. The balcony was dirty. The owner provided minimal assistance and was very slow to respond to our inquiries for help. He was very quick to respond regarding payment, checking out on time and returning keys. Not so much with help such as parking directions (not clear at all and had to figure out on our own). We also felt that additional charges for the parking provided were unwarranted. Finally, no air conditioning in August was an issue. Since there was limited breeze in the bedroom, we had to use the futon in the living room near a sliding glass door to sleep at night. We were asked to guarantee we would not mention in the building that we rented online which made us uneasy. The answer to the question on recommendation to a friend is based on a summer stay without AC.
